In contemplating the best strategy for giving you all the optimal placement opportunities for the Open, I’ve come up with a slight change to what we’ve done in previous years. This year I will be posting our strategy and tips for the Open workouts on Thursday night. Yes, for the other side of the world that means a very late post, but I’m hoping to have it up within two hours of the announcement (on Thursday night – EST).
We will be having a few of our athletes (multiple time Regional qualifiers) test the workouts at the finish of the announcement live stream. This, coupled with the live announcement, should give me and my team of nerds enough time to formulate a fairly accurate plan. Also, posting early will give us time to tweak the plan for those of you repeating, or doing the workout closer to the deadline. I will be posting the workout as the conditioning for Friday, along with a specific warmup for the event.
The goal will be to have a fairly accurate plan of attack for Friday, then have tweaks or other suggestions for a possible Monday repeat. Yes, this means I think repeats are now very important – especially with only twenty spots being up for grabs in most regions. And yes, we will be trying to get our suggestions up as quickly as possible this year, and will be able to tweak them if necessary.
Please make sure to input your results on the strategy post. For those of you who have the most success, I may need to email you with questions.
